This place is awesome! Food is always good and employees are super friendly! Not super expensive either! Great for a quick sit down bite or take it to go in a wrap! New favorite!

Great fresh food , you can watch them cook so you know it's clean and fresh. Outside seating or take away. We both had noodles and there was a lot of veggies and fish. Great last meal in Kauai.
